Explore the best trails near Modesto with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.
With a myriad of single track trails on both sides of the nice 2 way (marked)asphalt main trail that runs the mostly flat but quite curvy 4.5 mi route from near downtown to Claus Rd to the east, this scenic trail boasts, a main park with 4 tennis courts and a large covered picnic area, basketball hoops, and 2 children's play grounds. Dry Creek is never quite dry and runs wild like a river during the short rain season, then morphs back to it's lazy slow moving self during the other 10 months. Don't forget the 3 separate sets of 9 holes for some intense disc golf, and the nearby Creekside GC.
This all around recreation area is Modesto's best outdoor family excercise location, IMHO of course.
